TV Mini-Series | | Action, Animation
The GI Joe team must face Cobra's latest plot to conquer the world using a device that can control the weather.
The mini-series features the first appearance of the SHARC submarine. However it is seen being driven by Torpedo instead of its real driver, Deep six. Deep Six appears later in the first season episode "Cobra Stops the World."
Remember, Cobra's a snake, and "snake" is "sneak" spelled sideways.
Towards the end of the miniseries, Duke pulls a homing beacon out of his pocket and activates it so the Joes can traces its signal. First, why didn't Duke turn it on when he was *first* taken to the Cobra HQ? Secondly, as with Snake-Eyes, is security at Cobra HQ so lax that they don't check to see if prisoners are carrying weapons, or homing beacons, on them?
The home video version cuts a second scene from the TV mini-series: After Torpedo blows up the whirlpool and G.I. Joe and Cobra land on the island, there is a short scene where the Baroness tries to raise Zartan on the radio, demanding that he acknowledge her transmission. Zartan replies that he will acknolwedge her when it suits him, and not before. The scene (and video) then cuts to the Guard Statue in the Palace of Doom coming to life.
